If nothing else

I lived to ease the path of those who worried

those who felt alone

those who needed help

those who needed cheer

those who needed humor

those who needed to believe in beauty

in hope

and that they merited love.

If I am remembered and valued for this,

then all the decisions I made

to steer clear of worldly success

will have been worth it.
